Congrats to our Winter Guard and Indoor Percussion groups for their WGI performances!

The DSMA would like to congratulate all of our students for their excellent performances at WGI World Championships in Dayton, OH!

Our Winter Guard competed from April 3-6, 2019 in the Scholastic Open Class, finishing in 12th place with a score of 86.600! Our guard also received the coveted Fan Favorite Award for their captivating performance!

Our Indoor Percussion group competed from April 11-13, 2019 in the Scholastic World Class, finishing in 4th place with a score of 94.888, just barely missing out on medalling! Their show also won Fan Favorite as well.

Congratulations to all of you for your hard work and dedication all season long. We also would like to thank the staff members who worked with the students all season long, as well as the parent volunteers who chaperoned, built and moved props, and selflessly gave up their time to help our kids!

 

2019 Pops Concert Ad Book – now open!

Ads are now available for our 2019 Pops Concert Ad Book!

25% of all ads sold go to student assessments, so this is a great way to help reduce the cost of Dayton trips for our indoor groups, or you may defer the assessment towards next year’s marching band trip. Students must sell ads in 3 of their 4 years in high school to qualify for DSMA scholarships, so if your student has not sold one yet this year, you still have the opportunity!

Please click this link to download the Ad Book order form, which contains all of the information needed to purchase ads and turn in the paperwork & funds. Any questions can be sent to Becky Amaral beckyamaral@dsmahome.org.

The article goes in-depth on some details about how the shows are designed and developed, and also has some great pictures of our kids.
